Error starting HIVE when it is trying create tables on the database

Error starting HIVE when it is trying create tables on the database

Contributor

I have a MySQL RDS external Database. Access is tested and working but for any reason, when I try to start Hive, it fails with the following error:

 

Error found before invoking supervisord: 'getpwnam(): name not found: hive'

 

I don't have more logs.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

fix this error creating manually a "hive" user. but now I got a different one:

 

+ exec bash -x /usr/lib/hive/bin/schematool -verbose -dbType mysql -initSchema
bash: /usr/lib/hive/bin/schematool: No such file or directory
